Whether you want to address the aging effects of gravity on your breasts, or you want to enhance your breast size for a more confident chest, you have an abundance of procedures to choose from.

Breast implants can be an excellent treatment for sagging breasts. However, Breast Lifts are also available and may be a better option for you if your breasts are very droopy.

Learn about Breast Lift vs Breast Implants, the pros and cons of each, and which one might be right for you.

What is a Breast Lift Procedure?

A Breast Lift Procedure, also known as a Mastopexy, is a surgery to improve the shape and size of saggy breasts and to make the breasts look better in clothes.

The surgery lasts between 1-2 hours and is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. Procedure may vary depending on the needs of the patient. It can be done as a one stage or two stages surgery, which can take 2-5 hours.

The scars will be hidden in cleavage region, below breast tissue, or under armpits.

What is a Breast Implants Procedure?

Breast Augmentation surgery refers to surgical procedures that are used to increase the size and shape of breasts.

Breast implant surgery typically lasts from one to several hours depending on the particular procedure

Implants are positioned in the breast tissue with an incision made underneath the armpit or under the breast fold. The implant may be placed above or below the muscle.

Surgery may also be performed from inside the armpit, which would involve less scarring.

Is a Boob Lift Better Than Implants?

Many women have a question: Is a Boob Lift better than Implants?

This is a difficult question to answer, because it really depends on the person. People that are looking for Breast Augmentation surgery are typically looking for different things. Some women want larger breasts and choose implants, while others just want their breasts lifted and choose a Boob Lift.

Many women who have had both say that their favorite thing about the surgery was that they didn’t need to carry around any implants in order to make themselves feel like they looked good.

Is a Breast Lift Cheaper Than Implants?

The cost of the procedure varies widely, depending on things like where you live, your doctor’s fees, and what extra treatments you may need to have done at the same time as your breast lift.

Is a Breast Lift More Painful Than Augmentation?

All surgeries have associated pain and discomfort following the procedure. Breast surgeries are no exception. The level of pain also depends on the patient’s individual tolerance and their body’s response to pain relievers.

Procedures that involve manipulation of the pectoralis major muscle are associated with moderate pain in most cases.


When deciding on whether or not to get a Breast Lift instead of getting Implants, it’s important that you first understand all of the benefits of both types of surgery. After understanding all of these benefits, it will be easier to make a decision that is best for your personal needs and lifestyle requirements.
